    Engage people early and often. Avoid isolation. It’s difficult to criticize the plan you had a hand in making.

    Criticism is desirable and useful, even if it stings.

    Take criticism to a useful place by asking:

    • What do you suggest?
    • How can I be better?
    • What do you want?

    "Thank you," points criticism toward useful ends.
